Have you ever had a Croissant Donut at Epcot? They are so amazingly delicious! The mix of the flakey croissant with a warm cinnamon doughnut is to die for. You can purchase these delicious treats at Epcot in the Refreshment Portal. Thankfully I live in Orlando and can do this pretty much anytime I want, but I know most of you don’t have that luxury. So guess what, you are in luck! I found a recipe for making these at home from the Happy Housewife’s website. They are super simple and all you need is a package of crescent rolls, oil, and sugar. Enjoy!
